Our Mission

The Southern California Acoustic Telemetry Tracking Network (SCATTN) is a collaboration of researchers committed to increasing the geographic scope and coverage of marine acoustic telemetry receiver arrays in southern California and promoting the sharing of acoustic transmitter detection data across participating institutions.

While other types of telemetry and equipment manufacturers are available, SCATTN collaboration is currently based on Vemco acoustic monitoring receivers due to the widespread use of this technology and data sharing capabilities.
